Hi, sigmetricians,

This discussion about the "impact factor & small fields" may serve
as an example for a "thread", almost selfcontained. In that respect
it might induce others to join in for some time, and from that point
of view Professor Takashi did well to let us all know about his
response. (It appears it is good if the technology does not function
perfectly, sometimes.)
